Celler Can Blau Mas de Can Blau Montsant Spanish Red Wine 750 mL
Rated 94 points from Vinous Media 2015 vintage: very limited
“Lurid magenta color. A hugely perfumed bouquet evokes spice-accented red/blue fruit, incense and floral pastille scents, along with hints of vanilla and woodsmoke that build in the background. Alluringly sweet and penetrating on the palate, which offers juicy boysenberry, Chambord, cola and spicecake flavors that are supported by a core of smoky minerality. Finishes extremely long, with impressive fruit intensity, a sexy floral nuance and sharp delineation.”
After a very careful selection of our grapes of Garnacha planted on soils of slate -llicorella-, Carinena vineyards grow on clay soils and Syrah vineyards located on limestone soils, a very limited production of this exclusive wine is obtained after 18 months of maturing in French oak barrels.
Cellers Can Blau, founded in 2003, is one of the oldest projects of the Gil Family in Jumilla. Placed in El Molar, in the D.O. Montsant, this winery is the most diverse project regarding the grape varieties and the type of soils. The D.O. Montsant is nowadays releasing at its best the enological quality of its wines. Differently from its illustrious adjacent D.O. Priorato, in D.O. Montsant we work with unique varieties such as Carinena or Mazuelo and Grenache, planted in and adapted to different types of soils. Nuria Lopez Sarroca is the person in charge of the technical direction of the Winery.
